Sinn Fein Housing Spokesperson, Councillor Tony Hassan, has welcomed the proposed development of 800 new private homes in the Waterside area of Derry.

Colr. Hassan told the ‘Journal’ said he hoped the plans would “focus minds” when it came to the issue of the H2 site on the Buncrana Road.

“I welcome the news of plans that upwards of 800 new homes will be constructed at this site in the Waterside over the next 10 years,” said Colr. Hassan.

“These are very ambitious plans and it’s important that all road and traffic issues in that locality are resolved as a matter of urgency.

“I also hope that this news will focus minds to look once again at the H2 site on the Buncrana Road which offers massive potential for the building of hundreds of new homes,” added Colr. Hassan.
